I’m in! Was checking out at grocery store when I received the call, the checkout person asked me if I was all right because I was choking up with excitement. 

I haven't received a rejection nor an invite to interview. It sounds like both have already been sent out. The suspense is killing me. 

I started the page "Augsburg PA Program Class of 2023" when people want to join!

Anyone else super disappointed with the way the interview was structured? They asked me absolutely nothing about myself.. I was shocked! I interviewed at other schools and I feel like I had a 180 experience. I understand the reasoning for some of their questions, but the overall experience was very impersonal and short. They didn't even share any information about the program, I was like whats going on lol. If I get placed on the alternate list I will drop it.

That’s strange because I had a very different experience! First half was get to know you biographical questions second half was more situational/ethical questions. I assumed all the faculty asked the same stuff but maybe they get to choose what to ask?

I’m an alternate and I just got a call this morning that a spot opened up, but I will most likely be declining so someone else will probably get a call. 

When did you interview with them? I’m also on the alternate list and wondering how they’re going by the waitlist.

Hey just FYI. I had asked them how the waitlist works and they told me they don’t have applicants in any particular order. They said they evaluate the person who declined then look at the alternates and try to select an alternate who fits a similar niche as the person who declined in order to have a well rounded class.

Hey! Sorry for the late response. Thanks for letting me know. Hoping for some good news in 2021!

Just gave up my spot  because I was accepted in my first choice near home in Baltimore.

I had the best interview experience with Augsburg, so it felt a bit sentimental giving up my seat...

According to the way this program chooses candidates and fills their spots, someone international 🌎 would receive a call soon! 
 

Good luck future Auggies!☃️🏂

Did they discuss the waitlist at all to you?

I referred to this quote (below). I heard of a concept of “class profile” before and it makes sense

I just requested to be removed from the alternate list after being offered a spot in another PA program. I hope this helps open up a spot for another one of you guys. Wish you all the best of luck!
